Fold Over Snack Bags || Tutorial

sustainable reusable snack bags sewing tutorial
One of my favorite sewing projects to date are my reusable snack bags. I use them all the time and use half the amount of plastic bags. My kiddos love them and I love that I don't have to throw them away after using. 

Plus, you can use your favorite fabric and make it super fun and chic!

We have even used these at church, however, sometimes I feel a little guilty when I hear the sound of opening velcro. So I decided to try out making some fold over snack bags. You know, like the plastic fold over ones. Exactly like those, but way cuter! But I also did a fold over one with velcro, I couldn't resist.

Fold Over Snack Bags || Tutorial

  • Favorite Fabric
  • Oil cloth or laminated cotton fabric (I can't find it at Joanns, but you can find it online) or even a inexpensive table cloth

1|| Cut

 Cut one piece of fabric and waterproof fabric 15 x 6 (you can change these dimensions to make it longer or wider, as you like)

2|| Sew

 With right sides together of both fabric pieces, sew around the whole thing leaving a 4 inch gap on one side.

3|| Iron

Iron flat. Now here where it might seem tricky. With the water proof fabric touching, fold one end up to the point about 3 inches from the top. Then fold the other end 3 inches down on top of that. Then sew both sides together.
I hope that makes sense. It's kind of hard one to show, just look at the picture and it will make sense.
